|Zack Kouns - A Catalogue Of Erica's Misfortunes (ca192) - Zack Kouns|
"A Catalogue Of Erica's Misfortunes" examines in brief a fragile and lost human organism. The first track finds our young heroine speaking with her father, exhibiting early mental disorder and predilection to tragedy, hallucinating and choking with fear. The second track finds her many years later, a bystander happening upon her in a Public Restroom raped and left for dead. This horror encourages the bystander to muse about the abject misery of the often apparently random and brutally violent in...
|Zack Kouns - Endless Fertile Valley (ca418) - Zack Kouns|
Endless Fertile Valley is very loosely based on the Dhammapada; all of the song titles are garnered from the ancient text of the book. The album title is the only exception and is intended to illustrate the true theme of the album that the Dhammapada can only hint at and words in general can barely brush against (music being the ideal medium for conveying our most esoteric and abstruse intimations.) The theme came to me by accident (or mysterious design) during a 15 kilometer run during the summ...

|Zack Kouns - I lift my hands against the gods (ca290) - Zack Kouns|
"I lift my hands against the gods" is a panoramic, episodic, aural and textual examination of the first five hundred years of modern history beginning with Christ in the garden of Gethsemane and concluding with the Roman empire succumbing to the barbarian hordes. In between these two cataclysmic events (the former being one of the most poetic and moving in our recorded history, the latter displaying the generally unpoetic gradual decline and descent into the dullest sort of decadence that always...

|ZAUS – Congregation (ca189) - ZAUS|
Under certain circumstances a bull equals a cucumber’ (an anthropological saying) Being basically the brainchild of Austrian massage therapist Norbert Bieber, ZAUS was formed in 1995 as a musical collective open to all forms of audible expression. Consequently, the music of ZAUS oscillates between minimal and metal, ranging from spontaneous improvisation to organically grown conglomerates of multifarious sounds as well as from highly scientific concepts to cryptical nonsense...

|Zn'shñ : Oxymora (mini-EP) (ca160) - Zn'shñ|
Invented and defined by Smith, the term Zn'shñ signifies: the gleam of dark colours [especially those of nocturnal liquids and polished stones]. Deliberately antithetic and intentionally enigmatic, Zn'shñ is also basically enthused by Butoh iconography, Japanese Gagaku aesthetic and Tibetan rituals codification. Performed by Franck Smith & Elvire Bastendorff : electronic manipulations Recorded July 2008 in Paris (no overdubs) Total Playing — 10:48 * Version for free downloads, no commercial ...

|Zreen Toyz - Aesthetically Nebulous (ca426) - Zreen Toyz|
The perception of aesthetic in art is a nebulous concept based on cultural specifics and individual interpretations. So, from icebergs to telluric movements, the aesthetically nebulous path of this album is to immerse deeply in the clouds of sounds for discovering nebulous universes from beyond our introspective perception. About Zreen Toyz: Liking pushing aside the notion of composer or musician, the French artist Zreen Toyz often defines himself as a Sound-Sculptor or Sound-Poet...
